I wish to suggest that the ‘Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse’ set up by the Government and chaired by Fiona Woolf is designed to be — among other things — an exercise in State intelligence-gathering for nefarious purposes.
Think about it.
Whistle-blowers, witnesses, journalists, researchers, victims, survivors… all providing crucial information to the Establishment/State about:
– WHICH INDIVIDUALS know things
– WHERE these individuals who know things reside or work
– WHAT precisely these individuals/witnesses know and WHAT EVIDENCE is in their possession (how strong their evidence is)
– WHERE the original evidence is located (and how the authorities can go about seizing it)
– HOW LIKELY it is that the individuals coming forward pose a threat to the PTB (are the witnesses eloquent and likely to be believed? are they media-savvy? do they have any connections to influential people such as journalists?
– WHO ELSE these individuals have spoken to (& who else may have seen the evidence over the years)?
The Panel will receive and record witness testimonies and documentary evidence, much of which will never have seen the light of day before (because witnesses were scared or felt intimidated or powerless, etc.)
SOME OF THE INDIVIDUALS COMING FORWARD TO THE PANEL IN GOOD FAITH WILL NEVER HAVE SPOKEN ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCES AND KNOWLEDGE OF CHILD SEX ABUSE BEFORE.
SOME OF THE INDIVIDUALS COMING FORWARD WILL BE PUTTING SPECIFIC ALLEGATIONS ON RECORD FOR THE FIRST TIME, OR REVEALING THE EXISTENCE OF EVIDENCE (OR ITS LOCATION) FOR THE FIRST TIME.
Assuming that I’m correct, and one of the purposes of the Inquiry is indeed to flush out potentially damaging witnesses and evidence so that they can be ‘contained’, this Inquiry is extremely dangerous.
Indeed, if I’m right about the purpose of the Inquiry, it would be very unwise indeed — and possibly even dangerous — for anyone to have any dealings with it.
Witnesses who come forward could find themselves marked in MI5/Special Branch/Police files.
In extreme cases, people with knowledge who come forward could find themselves one day receiving veiled/coded threats, intimidations or warnings… and possibly they could even be suicided (or driven to self-harm via the application of carefully calculated external pressure by MI5/Special Branch agents).
Am I paranoid? Irrelevant.
The Security Services can and do physically harm people on the orders of the PTB. Not only individuals that they wish to silence, but sometimes persons to whom the targets are connected, i.e. by marriage or friendship (to serve as coded ‘warnings’ to the targets).
Another favoured tactic of the Security Services is tarnishing the reputations of witnesses/perceived adversaries.
If I’m right about the purpose of this Inquiry, key individuals who come forward to the Inquiry could find their identities leaked to the media, where their reputations will then be trashed OR they will be subjected to a horrendous level of press intrusion and public interest in their lives.
Other individuals who come forward could find that their employment opportunities mysteriously ‘dry up’ — or find themselves experiencing disturbing incidents or circumstances in their home lives, apparently coming out of nowhere. Money issues, health issues… you name it.
Finally, I’d like to re-iterate that I’m only putting the above forward as a hypothesis. I do not know for a fact that the Inquiry is intended to provide the PTB and Security Services with information to contain and neutralise ‘threats’.
But I would ask every whistle-blower, witness, journalist, researcher, victim and survivor to consider all possible implications VERY CAREFULLY before approaching the Woolf Inquiry or responding to any requests to appear or furnish evidence/testimony to it.
Imo, perhaps the more effective — and potentially safer — way to get information into the public domain and put pressure on the authorities is for anyone with information to broadcast it as loudly, broadly, and effectively as they can. For example, by approaching the few trusted campaigners and journalists (people like Bill Maloney, Chris Spivey) and by sending information (anonymously if necessary) to as many trusted figures in public life as possible.
KEEP MULTIPLE COPIES OF ALL EVIDENCE YOU POSSESS STORED IN DIFFERENT PLACES.
If you have important photographs, reports, lists, letters, emails, old newspaper cuttings, witness testimonies, diaries, audio recordings, video recordings… whatever… BACK THEM UP OR DUPLICATE THEM SEVERAL TIMES.
Make sure that if anything every happened to you (God forbid) … or if your house or workplace was ever subjected to a break-in or mysterious fire (God forbid) … the incriminating evidence would still exist in MULTIPLE other places.
Make sure that if the police were to arrive in the dead of night and seize your computer equipment, phone and laptop (God forbid), they would not find any evidence on there that you hadn’t already made copies of and placed securely elsewhere.
IT’S *NOT* ENOUGH SIMPLY TO HAVE EVIDENCE STORED IN YOUR COMPUTER, OR IN YOUR PAPER FILES. The Security Services can *remotely* intercept and seize or destroy whatever you may have on your computer or other electronic equipment, and whatever you send or receive via email. The Police/Security Services can also arrive at your home or property and seize everything in a heartbeat… (as Chris has recently related to us on this website).
If you have documents that you feel comfortable uploading to the Internet/social media, this is one way of ensuring that valuable information reaches the mass of the population.
Once widely available in the public domain, facts, witness testimonies and other evidence can inspire others into taking direct action: such as demonstrations and petitions. Information posted on alternative media sites and social media can also inspire journalists and researchers, prompt private prosecutions, and even put pressure on the authorities.
Just remember that, as soon as you begin posting allegations and/or claims on the Internet and/or uploading files of evidence, IT MAY NOT BE VERY LONG BEFORE YOUR NAME/IDENTITY APPEARS IN A LIST AND YOUR ONLINE & OFFLINE ACTIVITIES BECOME SUBJECT TO TARGETED SURVEILLANCE BY THE SECURITY SERVICES.
Once again, therefore, I would like to stress to anyone who has information about CSA… Please:
(a) Think long and hard before having any dealings whatsoever with the Woolf Inquiry or similar
(b) If you decide to do things independently (by contacting trusted journalists and public figures AND/OR by posting potential evidence or testimony online via social media or blogs such as Chris Spivey’s) make very sure that you back up and duplicate all evidence twice, twice more, and then twice again. DO NOT KEEP ALL YOUR EVIDENCE AT HOME, AT WORK, ON YOUR COMPUTER OR LAPTOP, OR IN ANY 1 SINGLE PLACE. DISPERSE IT WIDELY.
(c) If you know things, but the evidence is in your memory rather than in electronic or paper form, please carefully research and find at least 2 TRUSTED person to whom you can relate what you know. One could be your wife, husband, parent or child. Another might be someone like Bill Maloney or Chris Spivey. PLEASE DO THOROUGH RESEARCH BEFORE TRUSTING YOUR INFORMATION TO ANYONE, BUT PLEASE DO SHARE IT WITH A COUPLE OF PEOPLE, IN CASE THE SECURITY SERVICES EVER ‘GET TO YOU’ OR SOMETHING UNPREDICTABLE HAPPENS.
I would be interested to hear from others on this matter. Any one else think the Woolf Inquiry may be an exercise in witness & evidence containment?
I apologise for those who may find this post troubling. It is absolutely not my intention to frighten or alarm anyone unnecessarily. I just happen to know what the PTB and Security Services are capable of… hence my strong words urging that everyone with evidence or knowledge of CSA takes all possible precautions to safeguard what they know, prevent it (or themselves) from being ‘contained’), and ensure that the TRUTH GETS OUT.
